Here’s my tribute to the wonderful Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel in the upcoming film The Desolation of Smaug. I’m not sure I’ve done justice to her charming beauty.

This is (imo) a wonderful drawing. The shading on the arm in particular shows the shape of it well, and the hair flowing down in beautiful fashion is wonderful.
4 for Vision. The pose is brilliant, and it shows off the femininity of the character. he pose compliments the hair is falling, with your eye getting drawn to many parts of the picture at once.
3.5 for Originality. The three and a half is given for there is no pictures of Tauriel like this, and no hi-res pictures of her full body (that i could find). It seems like you have planned beforehand with the pose and the hair.
3 for Technique. Good shading on the arm and on the face, shows the curvature of the arm and the cheeks. The flowing of the hair works brilliantly with the picture, especially down her back, wisping away.
5 for impact. Absolutely love this picture, i am going to try and draw Tauriel now. Your eye gets drawn right into the picture, it is very visually appealing. There is good leading lines with the hair, and the line in the clothes on her arm, this picture is drawing your eyes to these vectors, which takes your eyes off to a different place. Absolutely brilliant. Keep up the good work
Vision 4 Okay, Well, I threw up a 4 in this area just because I feel that in order to get the hair/leaf effect you had to decide on a pose that did a feminine figure justice and work with your idea.
Originality 3 For this I went a solid 3. In all honesty, I have no idea who this character is. But with any fanart type deal, the originality aspect is in posing and settings and other kinds of interaction. The pose is nice, but is really just a standing pose. I have no clue if this character has or uses that hair/leaf effect or if it came from your head so I just disregarded that little spot.
Technique 5 This I gave a full blown 5. Not that it has much to do with this piece, but my good ol' Dad did a lot of landscape drawing using this sort of technique and texture so I immediately like it. The softness of this style works really well with the nature of her hair and clothes and I think you did a badass job shading and highlighting. I find the anatomy spot on as well.
Impact 5 On impact I stuck with 5 stars. The initial attention grabber is the stark contrasts in the character and then with this style, all the effort put into details- its definitely a piece you can look at and investigate.

ok. while i cannot pretend to know who this woman is, (not a great fan of these sword and sorcery films), i can say that i like this image. it is vivid, interesting, and quite simply well drawn. there is great mastery of form, excellent use of lines for shading, and also, a real sense of three dimensions. A real sense of purpose in the eyes, and a truly 'real' feel to the character. with regard to previous efforts, i cannot really comment on that, but i dare say you have a good eye for detail. the flow of the clothing and hair is beautiful, and very natural. i get a good sense of a true person from this one. sensational. really enjoying this image. thank you for sharing!
For vision, i give this a four, purely because i don't know if this is an original idea for an image or a copy from a still photo.
for originality, i have to say, mostly because this is not a completely made up character, a three.
For technique, i see some nice quality in your art, and feel there is much to encourage you to do yet. for this i give you a four.
for impact. Well... i personally am, a sucker for an image with a lot of feels to it, so i can say that this has a good sense of reality and thought. therefore, i must also say a four
keep doing great work, you really have a talent.
